Illinois Youth Survey 2015-2016
Christopher CUSD #99 is working with Center for Prevention Research and Development at the University of Illinois to conduct a survey of Illinois middle and high school students. The purpose of the Illinois Youth Survey is to better understand Illinois youth risk and protective behaviors as they related to student problems and academic success.
If your child participates, he/she will be asked to complete a survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be confidentially administered by a classroom teacher, counselor, or community member who has received training on survey administration. The survey is completely voluntary and privacy will be strictly protected and it will last about between 45-50 minutes. If there are any questions your child does not wish to answer, he/she is free to skip questions and they may stop taking survey at any time they choose.
Students who do not wish to participate in the survey or stop participating or whose parents choose to deny permission for their participation will be provided with an appropriate alternative activity while the surveys are being administered. The staff remind students of these rights before the survey begins.
